Assault And Aggravated Assault Defense In Johnson County

Get A Warrensburg Assault Defense Lawyer On Your Side

In Missouri, assault is not divided into categories like simple assault and aggravated assault. Whether you are accused of starting a bar fight, shoving a significant other or even disciplining your child, you could be charged with assault. However, in cases involving assault against a significant other, a spouse or anyone you are in a domestic relationship with, the assault could be labeled a domestic violence offense, adding a new challenge to your case.

At Lance A. Riddle Law Office, Attorneys at Law, in Warrensburg, we have more than 20 years of experience defending against assault charges. At the outset of your case, we will inform you of your options, guiding you toward the one that is right for you.

Is It Possible To Defend Against Assault Charges?

You may feel that you are in a tough position and that there is evidence against you, but it is important to understand that you are innocent until proven guilty. There are defense strategies, and we know how to use them to your benefit in an assault case.

We will look at whether you were acting in self defense or if the assault was actually mutual combat. Other questions we ask include: Was there any harm actually done? Did threats play a role? What was your relationship to the alleged victim, and what is the victim's history? There are many factors that can lead to the creation of a strong defense strategy or, at the very least, allow me to minimize the consequences of the charges against you.
